New Venture Creation
New Venture Creation: Entrepreneurship for the 21st Century, Canadian Edition, addresses the needs of upper-level entrepreneurship and new venture courses. Timmons provides strong, comprehensive theoretical coverage balanced with practical examples and cases, all designed to instruct students on how to formulate, plan for, finance, launch, manage, and eventually harvest a new venture. Timmons, Canadian Edition, is a rigorous, practical, and experiential text. The hands-on approach gets students thinking, planning, and ready to execute their own businesses. The text is practitioner-focused, features an especially rigorous section on financials, and focuses on high-growth, innovative ventures. Timmons covers the process of getting a new venture started, growing the venture, and successfully harvesting it. Through text, case studies, and hands-on exercises, this "how-to" text guides students in discovering the concepts of entrepreneurship and the competencies, skills, tools, and experience that will equip them to recognize entrepreneurial opportunities. Acknowledging that there is no substitute for actually starting a company, the Timmons authors believe it is possible to expose students to many of the vital issues and immerse them in key learning experiences that result in successful new venture creation.
